Citroen seem to sell complete lock/key sets and include the steering lock (which contains the ignition barrel) as part of the set but I think you just need the steering lock and a bolt to fasten it. The steering lock can have its combination specified to match your existing keys so you will not need any new keys - if you have a key code card for the car then take it to Citroen to help match the keys. The steering lock is sold as a separate item, part number 4162PT and its shear bolt 690759. Since you will not be changing your keys there should be no need for any coding. You can look on ebay with this part number for pictures of the lock but used prices seem to be dearer than the £100 you have been given by Citroen.

 

To change the steering lock start with the wheels in the ahead position, disconnect the battery, move the steering wheel full out and down, remove the steering column surrounds, unclip the transponder around the top of the ignition barrel and move it out of the way, disconnect the electrical connector from the lock, put the key in the lock and move it to the ACC position, undo the shear bolt holding the lock (try using a punch and hammer to turn it), press on a lug at the end of the lock with a screwdriver and remove the lock. When you fit the new lock start with the key in the ACC position, fit the lock, check the lug is in place, remove the key, check the steering locks before tightening the shear bolt and do not tighten it fully and shear it until you are completely happy with everything and the electrics are checked.

 

For disconnecting the battery I have found the following has not caused me any odd electrical problems:

11. Odd electrical problems caused by wrong battery disconnection procedure.

If you need to disconnect the battery and not do a BSI reset procedure, I have found the following has not given me any problems on a 2004 and 2007 C5 and a 2003 C3:

- remove the ignition key from the car

- open the bonnet

- wait a few minutes for the BSI to shut down

- disconnect the battery negative terminal

 

When reconnecting

- ignition key out of the car

- reconnect the battery

- wait a few minutes

- insert the key in the ignition and wait a minute

- turn the key to the first position and wait a minute

- turn the key so the dash lights come on and wait a minute

- start the engine

- take the windows down and up to reset the anti pinch

- reset the clock (and radio on the C3).

 

In the handbook for the 2015 C4 it says to wait at least 2 minutes after switching off the ignition before disconnecting the battery and when reconnecting, to wait at least a minute after switching on the ignition before starting the engine.

As a quick fix i opted for a second hand steering lock and barrel from a local Citroen breakers £40 for the unit and 2 keys not ideal having a different key for fuel cap and door locks but i fitted the new blades to the original fob so 1 key operates the remote and starts it and at least i can use it now.Thanks for the

reply.
